Teaching English Language Learners - Minor
Our communities and schools are becoming increasingly culturally diverse, and many teachers are finding their classrooms include an increasing number of non-English speaking students. For these situations, many teachers are seeking to improve their skills in helping these students overcome cultural and language barriers and find success in our educational system.
For our students pursuing a Major in Elementary Education, VCSU offers a minor degree program specifically to help prepare for teaching environments facing the challenges associated with non-English speaking students. The ELL minor includes a combination of foundation coursework, linguistics, methods, assessment, and field experience.
